Discarding Cards and Scoring Hands

Each hand in Poker Rush starts as ready-for-scoring with the hand image in the bottom of the card indicating that the card is 'held' (i.e. selected for scoring). Clicking on each 'held' card marks it for a discard -- the card immediately gets darker and the word 'discard' appears on it. Similarly, clicking on each card marked for discard marks it again as a 'held' card (i.e. selected for scoring).

The cards marked for a discard will get discarded once the 'Draw' button is pressed. These cards will get replaced by the new cards from the deck. The players get 3 opportunities to score a hand -- on the 1st, 2nd or 3rd draw. After that, the hand will have to be scored (by pressing the 'Score Hand' button).

Note:
separate decks do not mix - in order to avoid 'unseemly' pairs of the same card in one hand.
the current deck is displaying the number of cards left in it
The game may not let you select/discard the full amount of cards when:
  (a) you are close to the end of the 1st deck -- it has less than 5 cards left
  (b) the second deck is drawing to a close -- it has less than 5 cards left


Poker Rush vs. Poker

Poker Rush DIFFERS from well-known casino-style poker games. As opposed to casino-style Video Poker (which is played against the House), Poker Rush is a game of Skill, played against Other Real People competing for Top Score.

The following additional elements of Poker Rush make it a game of skill:

Poker Rush does not reshuffle the deck(s) after each draw
Poker Rush allows three player-selected opportunities for draws per each hand
Poker Rush requires its participants to compete against each other on a time basis in memorization, strategy and eye-hand coordination skills

Please note - there's NO Gambling or Casino-style Games at GameColony.com. GameColony Tournament participants never play against the 'House' but compete only against other real players using their Skill to achieve the Top Score. Each player contributes a small entry fee in Tickets to compete, and the winner gets the pot.
